“Hidden gem for full moon party!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

Great place to stay for full moon. It's a short walk to the shops and restaurants but far enough away from the night life n roudy streets. We stayed for 3 nights in one of the huts and could not recommend it more. The rooms were basic but you don't spend much time in there anyway, the shower was fine altho we had several visits from a giant spider in there!
The resort itself is very clean and the staff were quite helpful, great atmosphere for full moon. I heard places can get raided If you stay to close to the full moon party but this felt 100% safe.
Will definately be recommending this place for a short stay on koh phangan

We have just stayed here for two full moon parties (28 Dec and NY) and safe to say it was the best overall deal we spotted on the island- had air con, hot showers, a pool and very very friendly helpful staff. These things are very hard to come by on Koh Phangan. Am going to recommend all my friends stay here if they don't want to rough it.

They didn't have a safe in our hut/room though. However it was a very safe place to stay, the gave us an extra padlock for our door and there was a locked draw.

Stayed here for the July 2012 full moon party. Great location and so close to everything. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are big, spacious and clean with A/C and cable tv.

Only downside is that we were here for four days and the room wasn't cleaned once and we had to chase for fresh towels. Would expect the room to be cleaned for the price we payed.

We stayed in 2009 and had a great stay for the full moon party. We found ourselves back here in June 2012 after checking into a different hotel on the beach that had bed bugs.... so we literally ran back here!

The rooms are clean, fresh sheets, and the hotel has a great pool. The price is really reasonable too.

The hotel is behind Oasis bungalows on Sunset beach.

There isn't a 'spa' though, as this tripadvisor title suggests.
